Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK)
HSK is a international standardised test that is used to assess the Chinese language proficiency of non-native speakers (this includes non-Chinese, overseas Chinese and Chinese national minorities). The HSK is designed and organised by Hanban; it is held both in China and across the globe.
The HSK is designed to meet the need for a systematic measure of Chinese language proficiency that could be used throughout the world. There are three tests organised by Hanban: HSK, YCT and BCT.Youth Chinese Test (YCT) is for school age learners of Chinese and measures general Chinese. Business Chinese Test (BCT) is a standardized test designed to assess the Chinese proficiency of non-native speakers engaged in business activities. HSK tests the standard Chinese of adults. All information on HSK Tests and HSK Preparation Courses will be announced on this website.
Applications are open for the examinations in 2016. Details can be found on the information sheets below:
